iPhone App Heuristics

Hello IXDA peeps,

I'm in the process of adapting Nielsen's heuristics for iPhone apps &
would love your input. Here's an example of one:

1. Visibility of app status
The app should always keep users informed about what is going on,
through appropriate feedback.
Example: Shazam provides feedback as it analyzes audio.

Feature control on user interfaces

Hi All,

As applications grow, so does the demand for new features. I am curious
about two things. In the industry:

[1] What methods are used to determine the most "used" features as opposed
to the most "wanted" features?
[2] How often is this process repeated?

Any pointers will be appreciated.

Thanks,
Oliver

"Narcissism of small difference"

So what's the idea behind ''Massive Change'' [1]?

Bruce Mau: There's a design revolution coming out of North America. It dares
to imagine the welfare of the entire human race.

You mean, like the iPod?

Bruce Mau: No. It's not interesting to me. One of the most important things
we did was take the visual out of design.

Fixed v/s variable width web pages

This topic has been explored many times from a web design POV, but rarely
from an IxD one. When would you use each of the options? Fixed width seems
to have become the de-facto choice in content based websites, and variable
width in online tools. A great compromise is the combo method where its
fixed above and/or below a certain resolution/ window size and variable
inbetween. Thoughts?

When things go bump in the night (at IxDA.org)

Hi Everyone,

You may not have noticed, but something went bump in the night on the IxDA
web site this week. After investigating an issue someone reported with our
RSS feeds, we found that someone had inserted some malicious code onto our
site. The code quietly directed visitors' browsers in the background to a
site that attempts to install malicious software on visitors' computers.

Wireframes: Illustrator/Indesign question%u2026

One way I've gotten around this problem is to lay everything in
Illustrator out in a big spread, rather stacking content in layers. I
then place this file into multiple content boxes in InDesign, panning
and zooming to the appropriate locations.

Using Illustrator and InDesign together for design documentation is
often more trouble than it's worth, and I agree that you may want to
check out some other tool options. That said, I hope the solution I
mentioned is helpful!

Getting into interaction design

Hi all,

A couple of questions to put to the readers here.

I have a degree in psych and a PhD in HCI both from good universities
and want to get a steady position in this field. I've done industrial
work (human factors multi-company collaboration into commercial
aircraft cockpit design - assessment and some design) and commercial
work (workflow apps both desktop & web-based, scientific desktop app,
oil exploration app - design, assessment, development) and educational
(commercial VLE - assessment).
